This movie was released in Australia in 1981, and it actually aired numerous times on Aussie TV later in the 1980s. I can't remember if we saw it in the theater, but i know that my mother, my sister and i watched it together at least once, possibly more, on VHS and/or on TV.

The movie never seemed especially gory or scary to me, partly, i guess, because i was a teenage boy who reveled in that stuff anyway, and partly because i also assumed that all of the blood and the attacks were carefully choreographed and fake.

I don't think i had ever heard before about all the real attacks and other problems on the set. Pretty crazy!
